Description

DARQ is a 2.5d side-scroller that tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who finds himself in the middle of a lucid dream. To Lloyd's misfortune, the dream turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. Trapped inside his own subconscious, Lloyd has to face his deepest fears in order to find a way out.

While in development, DARQ won Best Of The MIX Award at PAX West 2018 and landed on the front page of reddit multiple times, becoming one of the most upvoted posts of all time. Created almost entirely by a first-time solo developer (and a few talented contractors), DARQ launched to critical acclaim on Steam and GOG.

Since launch, DARQ won numerous awards and became #42 most shared PC game of 2019 according to Metacritic. As a way to say "Thank You" to the community, two free DLC were released: "The Tower" and "The Crypt."
